This course was excellent whether one is completely new to NVC or one wants to practice and deepen learning. For me I found it enjoyable, fun, well explained and run. I especially like the practical exercises to ensure it is meaningful in life. I would recommend this to the curious and indeed to all people - it's a great experience, safe and fun with much space for learning and failing, with style :-)" - Morgan Matthews Sliding Scale NVC Geneva is a non-profit association.
